amazing race 16 jeff jordan 320 'Amazing Race 16': Meet 'Big Brother's' Jordan and Jeff and 10 other teamsYes, you read correctly. “Big Brother” contestants Jordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder are competing on a team for the 16th season of “The Amazing Race.” Can we say Romber 2.0?

Their involvement isn’t a huge surprise since Zap2it had reported in November that the couple was spotted and snapped in an airport in “TAR” garb & backpacks with a camera crew nearby.

The reality show-hoppers will compete against 10 other teams for “Amazing Race 16,” which premieres on the most romantic of holidays for the lovebirds, Sunday, Feb. 14 Valentine’s Day at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Among the other contestants are a couple of undercover detectives, dating models, a 71-year-old grandma/personal trainer and a pro bull rider.

As always, the Emmy-nominated Phil Keoghan will host. In the latest installment of the race around the world, the teams will start in Los Angeles on the nearly 40,000 mile race that spans five continents and eight countries.

CBS teases that the racers will encounter a World War I reenactment in France, retrace the early days of The Beatles (We hope they have to re-create the Abbey Road cover), and come face-to-face with one of the world’s most infamous villains.

Okay, that last one is intriguing, if vague. Seeing as how some of the most infamous villains are dead, perhaps the racers will go to a wax museum? A costume party? Or perhaps these are fictional villains, which would still leave this open to a costume party.

Check out the racers:

And here’s more on Jordan and Jeff in case you needed a refresher.

Photos of the racers will be posted shortly.
